This pattern was my second PDF pattern. Its still drawn by hand; you could call it Marina's 'Vintage Pattern'. :)
The fit is great and I shall be making quite a few for my impending summer holiday.
Its quickly made and its cleverly cut so it doesn't need darts or a zip. It can be made in just an hour which is great news if you want something really quick.
Using a complete facing to finish of necklines is probably the quickest way ever to get instant results. The pattern comes in the four sizes as e-book (PDF) as immediate download , so you just have to get yourself some great fabric, use the link to the online lesson below and you are ready to go. I show you exactly how you can achieve this professional look.
The PDF is true to size, just cut the pattern out, attach the pattern pieces together, and you are good to go! Enjoy making a quick dress which can be endlessly adapted to make different styles and don't forget to leave your comments
